engine paint removal

I wanted to strip the paint off my engine without actually removing it from the car. I was planning on using the POR system to paint it afterwords.
What do you think is the best way to get the paint off ?

I would not use a chemical stripping product.

1) Wire brush off the oil, gunk, and old paint.
2) Soak it in engine degreaser.
3) Hit it with a high pressure hose.
4) Repeat 2 and 3 till clean.
5) Shot the new engine color.

I was under the impression that the POR15 engine enamel needed to be placed over the bare metal ( after the metal ready by POR).

This process works with regular engine paint, I would not think POR would be any diff, if anything it would be even less dependant on a clean surface.
